The family-friendly activities include entertainment and conference topics covering all aspects of green living. Many local businesses will take part in the retail marketplace and food and drink will be available throughout the day. Local services such as community-supported agriculture, nutritionists, chiropractors and other sustainable businesses will be featured.
